Book for an event

One of the internet's foremost culture vultures, Olivia Swarthout prowls the web for little-seen snippets of medieval art and life to share with the world via the Weird Medieval Guys Twitter and instagram accounts. Described by her mother as having 'a knack for curation' uses her platform to shine a light on the so-called 'Dark Ages' and bring people closer to the distant past. Born in the Rocky Mountains of Montana, USA, Olivia's enduring love of cowboy boots and the great outdoors has survived many years of living in Berlin, Glasgow, and London, where she currently resides and works.
